Chic by Accident

A gallery, a workshop, a studio – where the juxtaposition of traditional Mexican folk objects combines with antiques and mid century exquisite objects. A multi faceted life envisioned by French antiques dealer and decorator Emmanuel Picault.
The gallery was established in 2000 and flourished. Emmanuel’s style in conjunction with Mexican aesthetic proved a good match, and in 2010 the architectural design studio emerged; working on commercial and residential projects.
Chic By Accident is a fantastic destination. Every artifact, big and small, new and old, are so carefully selected. Truly, we wanted half the inventory, but its a bit difficult not living in DF! (although they do ship worldwide). We ended up getting a mescal flask (delicous!), a large silver nautilus shaped champagne bucket and a very dark and bizarre Huichol skull (still among our treasures).
On our visit we met Emmanuel Picault, quite a charming man, who made us feel at home; inviting us to join him, and his friends who were visiting, to share in some Mescal.
Thank you Emmanuel for your wonderful space and hospitality!
